Keep carpet cleaning simple. I have a small steam vacuum. I have always had trouble rinsing out soap residue on carpet areas even when using very little soap in the cleaner. Recently I tried adding a little ammonia to the water instead of soap. I found that it did a terrific job cleaning, produced no ammonia odor, dried very quickly, and required no rinsing. All of which made my job much easier. I would highly recommend this procedure.

I'm trusting that this will work, because I'm about to clean my filthy carpet traffic paths that aren't covered with boxes, and furniture. I am wondering what you mean by "a little" to how much water? God bless you. : )
If you have cats or dogs I don't recommend this! Even a slight ammonia odor remaining in the carpet might attract them to pee pee because the ammonia smell will make them think it's their poddy area :-o
I'm wondering what the name of your SMALL steam
vacuum is? GG Vi
This is great, but I'd advise using NON-Sudsing ammonia.
I would do a test in a hidden area to check to see what the ammonia might do to the color of your carpet.
